The Arctic Freshwater Biodiversity Monitoring Plan is a framework to improve circumpolar monitoring efforts of Arctic freshwaters, including ponds, lakes, rivers, and their associated tributaries and wetlands. The Freshwater Plan provides Arctic countries, monitoring professionals and volunteers with a set of guidelines for common approaches and indicators in monitoring activities, and for collecting existing data. The Freshwater Plan will facilitate information collection and analysis, identify and fill knowledge gaps, and provide better information for use in policy and decision-making.
